Default the Brothers from Phinney Ridge

had to run into Seattle this morning to pick up some things, and since it was a clear day, and the Olympics were visible, i threw my 40D with the 100-400 into the car. this isn't my best stuff by any stretch, but it does sorta capture the view from Phinney Ridge north of downtown... 40D, 235mm, 1/500 @ f/13...

mainly it's the foreshortening effect of using a telephoto lens... and, of course, the vertical format emphasizes the height. shot in horizontal format, they look close, but not nearly as tall...
